yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours golden orange with a huge off-white and creamy head. Malty, slight acidic and sweet aroma, spiced yeasty as well. Soft creamy to crispy mouthfeel. Strong caramel malt flavour with that classic belgian spice note. Has some fruityness to it that I cannot completely make out, some orange-like notes. Somewhat dry with a slight woody feel, yet very soft. Has a herbal and spiced finish mixed in with the smoothness. Great.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2004
A hazy dark orange beer with a fine off-white head. The aroma is sweet and spicy with coriander and oranges being most dominant, but also other citrus fruits. The flavor is very sweet, like caramel, with notes of oranges, malt, licorice root, coriander, and yeast. The mouthfeel is very soft - the sweetness lingers for a long time.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Rather pale orange and almost opaque from the loads of sediment. Extremely aromatic and dry with a very spicy body - spicy and yeasty. Some citrus-like notes in there too. Unusual to find this much flavour in a Triple. 15.0294

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Bottled. Cloudy amber coloured with a creamy off white head. Fruity aroma with notes of spices and alcohol. Fruity flavour with some sweetness and notes of spices and alcohol. Hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amber colour with huge creamyish foamy head. Aroma of spices and fruits, with slight hints of wheat and yeast also. Flavour is yeast, fruits, wheat and slight honey + alcohol. Quite strange tripel in a way, but then again, it’s like witbier meets tripel... Overall quite pleasant. Palate is both watery and also a quite rich carbonation ruins it a bit.

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2004
Sampled draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm.
Pale amber. Sweet and dusty with light, sparkling mouthfeel. Flavours include some winegums, but it’s a real light version of a tripel.

Clear deep blond color; big creamy head. Dry mouthfeel, simple, some sweetness at the end. Light malt aroma, a bit spicy. Too simple.

2002-09-15, 8-5-8-4-15=40
Amber colour, almost explosive bottle (75cl corked); giant head, wonderful lace.
Good malt aroma, a bit corky
Malty, sweet, smooth (the carbonation left the bottle time before, launching the cork till the edge of the garden), corky. The bitterness balances enough the sweetness.
Pretty good example of the style, but it lacks a better hop character, to be really good, being not so complex.

33cl bottle: Cloudy gold with a large lasting full white head. Aroma is yeasty with a ton of fruits. Apple, orange & apricot. Full bodied with a lively carbonation. Fantasic lacings. Herbal & spicy end. Dry & light sticky. Great!
